Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother's art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it's in the red.

Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year.

The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting...but surely her mother didn't mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red...

Yowza! Is this book ever smokin’! I’ve read two other books by Reisz, but they were more on the contemporary side. I love them both, so I didn’t hesitate to grab The Red, which definitely falls in the erotica realm and pushes boundaries. It’s so well written and has a dreamy, magical feel that I got completely lost in it. It really is an intriguing story that involves making a deal with a mysterious stranger. What a delicious stranger he is!

Mona is a great character. I love how she is unapologetic and owns what she agrees to. No only that, but truly enjoys it. It’s cool the way the story unfolds and how art in incorporated, and I was absolutely thrilled with the ultimate outcome.

I definitely need more Reisz in my life!

      Yeah, this is a lot more sexually explicit than her other books. I grabbed The Lucky Ones last night! πŸ˜€

  1. I have read the author’s work before. I heard wonderful things about this book. I have a copy courtesy of the publisher, I just need to get to it/

      This is only the 3rd book of hers that I’ve read, but both The Night Mark and The Bourbon Thief are great. Can’t go wrong with either one, but I did like TBT a little more.

  2. Funny we both had Reisz reviews on the same day! πŸ™‚ I actually have this in audio and now I’m even more eager to give it a listen. I’ve only read 2 from Reisz and they’ve both been from her Original Sinners series. *sigh* So very well written. I’m glad you enjoyed The Red!

  3. I swear I replied to this post but maybe I was just exceptionally tired and got lost somewhere along the way. ‘Tis the life of a coffee addict who can’t seem to get a full nights rest. Tiffany Reisz is one of my favourites–there’s something so intense and swoon worthy and explicit and full of escape in her writing. I loved The Red! It was so brilliant. Great review.
